Eric Schmidt spotted using Moto X

Business Leaders Meet In Sun Valley, Idaho For Allen And Co. Annual Conference

While we all wait anxiously for Motorola to simply get down to business and release the Moto X, today we have some new pictures of the device in the hands of none other than Eric Schmidt, executive chairman at Google. While his hand is covering up a bit of the phone in pretty much every picture, they’re still very sharp and clear and give us a good view of what the production model of the Moto X might look like.

In the photos, Schmidt is using a Moto X with a white back, which is obviously a good choice for one of the customizable backs of the phone. The device looks to have a rounded back with the headphone jack placed on the top of the phone. The camera placement is like that of the Galaxy S4 with the lens above the flash. What appears to be a speaker is next to the camera lens, and the whole back seems to have some sort of textured pattern that actually looks very nice. I’m not sure if I’m the only one who thinks this, but the phone appears to follow a few of the same design cues as the HTC One. The curvature of the back, the round camera lens placed in the center and the simple manufacturer logo placed on the middle of the backplate all exude a bit of the same look the One has.

Ceck out the gallery below to see different angles of the phone. You can also follow the link to Insider Images for a few more shots of the device. What these pictures pretty much confirm is that the Moto X is indeed nearing launch and is a good enough phone for the executive chairman of Google to use. That’s certainly saying something, and it builds the hype for the phone even further.

Are you planning to pick up a Moto X when it’s released?
